Im hoping that Starshine is not flashing yet because it has not "spun
up" . The rotation of the satellite is maintained by solar radiation
pressure. Can anyone who saw the deployment on CNN tell us if it was
rotating at deployment ? I'm hoping not to disappoint my students when
we get our first window, starting June 12...
